The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) announces the result of the forth call for proposals in 2018 under the SPRINT – São Paulo Researchers in International Collaboration initiative.

The SPRINT aims at promoting the engagement of researchers affiliated with higher education and research institutions in the State of São Paulo in partnership with researchers abroad in order to further develop qualitatively the ongoing research projects and work cooperatively, aiming at the elaboration of joint research projects for medium and long term.

The call detailed the conditions to submit proposals for the mobility of researchers with the following institutions, that hold cooperation agreements with FAPESP: Australian Technology Network (Australia), CALDO Consortium - University of Waterloo and Western University (Canada), Universität Hamburg (Germany), Leiden University (Netherlands), Lund University (Sweden), Brunel University London e University of Southampton (United Kingdom), Duke University, Emory University, Texas Tech University e University of Illinois (United States).

The opportunity was also opened to proposals from researchers whose partners are from institutions that did not applied for this edition or with those that FAPESP does not have a current agreement.

No proposals were selected with partners from Lund University.
